Subject: Holy Ga-Moly!
This is up there with 6/28, 7/17, 8/4, 9/27 for tops in a tops year.
Subject: Good Pre-80's AUD
Subject: Good jams
Low points include a Friend of the Devil that drags. Bertha here is starting to lose its earlier energy. Phil and Kieth aren't loud enough. But a good show.
Subject: listen to Jam after wheel before ship of fools!
Subject: great / worth a listen
Subject: Strangest I could find
Why so few boards from this tour? Odd.
Subject: Gotta love 76...
That being said, you definitely get the feeling you are there when you listen. Excellent verisons of Mama Tried, Deal, one of the best Cassidy's I've ever heard, gotta love a stand-alone Scarlet (and this one will stand up to any), and the Help>Slip!>Franks is awesome (not my favorite Help>Slip!, but one of the best versions of Frankiln's I've ever heard).
All in all, worth every second of the download. Sound=3.5, Setlist=4.25, Performance=4.5...4.08 overall.
Subject: Help SlipFrank
However, it's the second set that shines here. HelpSlipFrank has always been a potent combination and this version packs a punch. It seems that the 76 versions were a little spacier (6/3,6/10,6/14,8/4, etc) while the 77's were tighter and more centered on the Franklin's groove.(2/26,4/23,5/9,6/9 etc.) Whichever type you prefer this one will leave a smile on your face. Its one of the most underrated, underappreciated HelpSlipFranks the Dead ever played. I would assume that the reason for this is because this show seems to be available only as an audience tape. However, Jerry Moore did an incredible job, as usual, with the equipment available to him at the time. The Dancin that snakes its way through the middle of the set is also hot and shows off the bands ability to go in and out of a song with ease. The end of the show (GDTRFB, Sat Nite, USBlues)is over-the-top rock and roll and sent everyone home on an up note.
